Patterns by Pixel

Martha Stewart Living, December 2007

Handcrafted and high-tech aren't adjectives often linked. But thanks to an array of typeface and pattern books that come with CDs, designs such as Japanese florals and Pennsylvania Dutch motifs are available for your computer. Use them to embellish plain totes, vases, or other small staples and you'll have gifts on hand for every person on your holiday list -- and even a few you might have forgotten.

    You can also use CDs from pattern books to do florals on a vase and then embroider the same pattern on a throw pillow and have the pattern printed on canvas art pieces (http://www.canvaspress.com). This is a crafty way to introduce patterns into your home on both a large and small scale.

    Yeah, usually you can go right to the patterns but I am not seeing where you can import them. Any help would be great.

    I would also like to know where to find the pattern CD's or any template for monograms.

    Where can you buy these pattern CD's?
